If A and B are independent events then are A and B' independent?

if P(A)>0 then P(B'|A)=1-P(B|A) so P(A intersect B')=P(A)P(B'|A)=P(A)[1-P(B|A)] =P(A)[1-P(B)] =P(A)P(B') the definition of independent events is if P(A intersect B')=P(A)P(B') that is the proof

What is the product rule and the sum rule of probability?

Sum Rule: P(A) = \sum_{B} P(A,B) Product Rule: P(A , B) = P(A) P(B|A) or P(A, B)=P(B) P(A|B) [P(A|B) means probability of A given that B has occurred] P(A, B) = P(A) P(B) , if A and B are independent events.

How do you find p(b) when p(a) is 23 p(ba) is 12 and p(a U b) is 45 and is a dependent event?

There are symbols missing from your question which I cam struggling to guess and re-insert. p(a) = 2/3 p(b ??? a) = 1/2 p(a ∪ b) = 4/5 p(b) = ? Why use the set notation of Union on the third given probability whereas the second probability has something missing but the "sets" are in the other order, and the order wouldn't matter in sets. There are two possibilities: 1) The second probability is: p(b ∩ a) = p(a ∩ b) = 1/2 → p(a) + p(b) = p(a ∪ b) + p(a ∩ b) → p(b) = p(a ∪ b) + p(a ∩ b) - p(a) = 4/5 + 1/2 - 2/3 = 24/30 + 15/30 - 20/30 = 19/30 2) The second and third probabilities are probabilities of "given that", ie: p(b|a) = 1/2 p(a|b) = 4/5 → Use Bayes theorem: p(b)p(a|b) = p(a)p(b|a) → p(b) = (p(a)p(b|a))/p(a|b) = (2/3 × 1/2) / (4/5) = 2/3 × 1/2 × 5/4 = 5/12

Give the example of why probabilities of A given B and B given A are not same?

Let's try this example (best conceived of as a squared 2x2 table with sums to the side). The comma here is an AND logical operator. P(A, B) = 0.1 P(A, non-B) = 0.4 P(non-A, B) = 0.3 P(non-A, non-B) = 0.2 then P(A) and P(B) are obtained by summing on the different sides of the table: P(A) = P(A, B) + P(A, non-B) = 0.1 + 0.4 = 0.5 P(B) = P(A,B) + P(non-A, B) = 0.1 + 0.3 = 0.4 so P(A given B) = P (A, B) / P (B) = 0.1 / 0.4 = 0.25 also written P(A|B) P(B given A) = P (A,B) / P (A) = 0.1 / 0.5 = 0.2 The difference comes from the different negated events added to form the whole P(A) and P(B). If P(A, non-B) = P (B, non-A) then P(A) = P(B) and also P(A|B) = P(B|A).

Definition of additive law in probability?

This has to do with the union of events. If events A and B are in the set S, then the union of A and B is the set of outcomes in A or B. This means that either event A or event B, or both, can occur. P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A and B) **P(A and B) is subtracted, since by taking P(A) + P(B), their intersection, P(A and B), has already been included. In other words, if you did not subtract it, you would be including their intersection twice. Draw a Venn Diagram to visualize. If A and B can only happen separately, i.e., they are independent events and thus P(A and B) = 0, then, P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A and B) = P(A) + P(B) - 0 = P(A) + P(B)

How might two probabilities be added?

If A and B are two events then P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A and B)

What is the Formula for odds for either of two events?

If A and B are mutually exclusive event then Probability of A or B is P(A)+P(B). If they are not mutually exclusive then it is that minus the probability of the P(A)+P(B) That is to say P( A or B)= P(A)+P(B)- P(A and B). Of course it is clear that if they are mutually exclusive, P(A and B)=0 and we have the first formula.

What is multiplication rule in probability?

Given two events, A and B, the conditional probability rule states that P(A and B) = P(A given that B has occurred)*P(B) If A and B are independent, then the occurrence (or not) of B makes no difference to the probability of A happening. So that P(A given that B has occurred) = P(A) and therefore, you get P(A and B) = P(A)*P(B)

Probability of A compliment given by B?


What is addition theorem of probability?

Consider events A and B. P(A or B)= P(A) + P(B) - P(A and B) The rule refers to the probability that A can happen, or B can happen, or both can happen together. That is what is stated in the addition rule. Often P(A and B ) is zero, if they are mutually exclusive. In this case the rule just becomes P(A or B)= P(A) + P(B).

Prove if A and B are independent events than A' and B' are independent events?

first prove *: if A intersect B is independent, then A intersect B' is independent. (this is on wiki answers) P(A' intersect B') = P(B')P(A'|B') by definition = P(B')[1-P(A|B')] since 1 = P(A) + P(A') = P(B')[1 - P(A)] from the first proof * = P(B')P(A') since 1 = P(A) + P(A') conclude with P(A' intersect B') = P(B')P(A') and is therefore independent by definition. ***note*** i am a student in my first semester of probability so this may be incorrect, but i used the first proof* so i figured i would proof this one to kinda "give back".

Why is the probability of intersection of two events subtracted in the sum of the events?

The short answer is that if you don't do so, the intersection is double counted. The longer answer follows: Suppose you have two events A and B which overlap. Then, Event A = (only A happens) and (both A and B happen). These two are mutually exclusive so that P(A) = P(A only) + P(both). Similarly, P(B) = P(B only) + P(both). Now, the event that A or B happen is the event that only A happens or only B happens or both happen. That is, P(A or B) = P(A only) + P(both) + P(B only) Adding and subtracting P(both) gives P(A or B) = P(A only) + P(both) + P(B only) + P(both) - P(both) Now, the first two are P(A) and the next two are P(B) So P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(both).
